It has been a year since the media storm surrounding Morgellons disease peaked and died. The news angles were essentially the same: an alarmist anecdotal lede like the one above, usually featuring a Morgellons sufferer in the reporter’s respective area; the story—or at least mention—of Pennsylvania-cum-Surfside Beach, S.C. resident Mary Leitao, a mother of three who discovered and named the affliction and who founded the Morgellons Research Foundation (MRF); the emerging science, some legitimate, some quackery and the medical community’s dismissal of the symptoms as psychosomatic; something about the CDC; the whole thing capped off with a tragic, cliffhanger-like ending: “For now, the only thing they can do is spread awareness and hope for a cure.” Fade out.
Just the mention of that witches name makes me ill. Her and old Gingersnaps Savely repulse me.
Here, is what the papaer should have reported. It is a much better accurate view of what is really going on in the world. Note: The first three words of the article sums it up best.
Wymore will be on the x-zone radio show tonight at 7pm-10pm pacific.
Did anyone catch wymore on the radio show? I caught the last 15 minutes. May go take a listen to the archives sometime this weekend if i get the chance.
I listened to some of it. Nothing really new, although this image was interesting.
I think it’s what Wymore used at his presentation. If anyone know where there is a higher resolution version, I’d like to see it. I recognize the photos, but I’d like to know what’s he’s claiming regarding each photo.
Yeah, we all need to see that. Hehe, I’m trying to read about those scabs, now, and over on the bottom right-hand side, under “Fiber Analysis”, “Microscopy”, I had a little trouble making out the word following, “cell”.
Turns out , it says, “ulose”
Sadly he continues with the straw man:
Doctor Wymore, Delusions of Parasitosis is NOT a purely psychiatric condition.
I think you need to read about it.
Nancy Hinkle – Delusory Parasitosis, American Entomologist, Spring 2000
It goes on, (and, by the way, Fig. 3 is very large).
But of course, it’s the fibers, stupid.
But as we know, fibers are everywhere.
Dr Wymore seems to be discrediting his real science by involving himself with “alternative” websites.
Thanks Tall, thats really good news that fibers are everywhere. Great advice thanks!!!.
But, that was a statement, TC’d made, Steven. I’ll offer some advice to anyone who is concerned about fibers, and has it together enough to keep from being scammed by the likes of “the morgellons disease professionals”. Discuss your concerns (truthfully, I mean, without reservations), with a mental health professional, because anyone who is obsessing over having fibers in their skin, in their orifices, in their bodily fluids, their bath water, their food, their home, their car, and/or everywhere they go, and theorizing about their meaning, needs serious mental help. Patients with the type of psychosis associated with bi-polar disorder and schizophrenia may never get over those delusional thoughts, though, but coping techniques and medications can make life more bearable.
I hope what I said doesn’t open a can of worms, because I know that not everyone who, NOW, thinks that they have “morgellons disease” has those two particular illnesses. But, for those who do, they have influenced an awful lot of other people. They certainly can’t be blamed, nor can anyone who has the belief, and spreads the fear of “morgellons disease”, being the victims of circumstance they are.
